RIGHT NOW I THINK YOUR BEST OPTION IS TO CALL A LEAK DETECTION CO. AS I MENTIONED EARLIER ,IT'S A GUESS GAME RIGHT NOW WITHOUT ACTUALLY LOOKING AT IT .

Pool Leak

Postby More Pool Users » Tue 30 Jan, 2007 00:40

We've just had a leak detector guy repair a pressure leak on the return piping of our pool - it wasn't too expensive, but it is possible to repair yourself. The symptoms were very similar to what you describe and most frustrating!

We had poor suction when kreepy crawler was operating and getting lots of air through the system. On normal pump operation this wasn't as obvious until recently.

The problem was a crack in a joiner pipe underground, sitting below the skimmer box. We had to dig up the concrete surround for the repairs.

Apprently this is quite common in older pools (We have a fibreglass pool, but I guess concrete pools have similar piping).

I agree with Pool User - get a leak detector in to locate the leak!

Hope this helps!
